Innovations and technological advancements in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) play a key role in our lives. Not only do they fuel gains in economic productivity, but they also drive improvements to our lives through new inventions and discoveries. The value of STEM to our future is now widely recognised across the globe.
One of the Department of Education and Training’s priorities is to support schools in delivering a world-class STEM education to every young Queenslander. We are committed to preparing Queensland students to take advantage of the opportunities provided by our changing world.
To achieve this, we are focusing on creating a culture of high achievement in STEM education by building teacher capability, lifting student achievement and increasing student participation in STEM. For further information on this, read more on the following pages.
